Welcome to the IOSH Singapore Branch, representing health and safety professionals in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.
As we move into the 9th Year of IOSH Singapore Branch being established, the AGM held on 17th May 2018 saw a refreshed Exco take up position. After several years of strong development involving many core exco members since inception, several of these core members have now stepped down to allow a new and younger generation of safety practitioners and IOSH members to take up position.
We thank all the previous exco members (and those remaining) for their passion and commitment towards developing the branch and safety in our community in Singapore and the region. I personally find myself returning to take up the post of Chairman again, I am grateful for your support and confidence to bring me back into post. I am excited to be able to now work with many new members on the exco team, showing that our branch is planning for the future with transitions taking place.
This year our branch will realign ourselves to the IOSH 2022 Vision, while doing so establish the THEME for this year as GROW; Grow Professionally; Grow Personally. With this, the branch will engage with members with regular events; and development of members IPD and CPD to encourage more members to work towards the Chartered membership status.
The branch will reinforce our relationships with other like-minded associations in Singapore and the region to promote the safety and health message wherever we touch and reach. This year will be the first time IOSH will be hosting APOSHO which is being held in Hong Kong in December, it is also the first time the IOSH President post will be held by someone outside the UK, Vincent Ho based in Hong Kong will take up the IOSH President position from September and will receive full support from our branch during his Presidential term.
A message from Steven Low your Vice Chairman - In order to convert as many graduate members from our Singapore Branch to achieve their Chartered membership, we hope to engage those members who have been recently awarded Chartered membership to come forward to share their experiences and lessons learnt. We will provide training and support for members who are keen to "Pay Forward". We trust with all contributions whether big or small, we will grow professionally and personally together as one Singapore IOSH Branch.
Your exco team are here to work for you, if you have any requests, or would like to contribute to an event by helping out or arranging the speaker or activity, we would be pleased to hear from you.
We will look forward to working for you with the exco team and meeting you at the events we will be arranging this year.
GROW PROFESSIONALLY; GROW PERSONALLY and Be Safe.
Best regards and wishes,
Darren Brunton CFIOSH
